From whatever software you are printing, you will need to select the properties or features. In Pagemaker, it was features, but most other programs I now see it under properties for the 3220 on the print screen. You will need to find where it gives you the options for color. They should be color, greyscale or black & white. The default is generally color. Generally the 3220 will know if it is not a color document and print the black and white as a greyscale, but sometimes you have to force it.

If you are printing crop marks and color bars, then your document is recognized as color even though it may not be.

Finally, some programs use a black that is actuall 100% of CMY & K. If you are using InDesign and select registration as your black, instead of the plain black, then you document is recognized as color.
The same holds true if you select a pantone grey which is created from several colors. So also make sure that your document is truly greyscale and or that you tell the copier to print in greyscale.

My Canon MNP610 prints black instead of colours - so I get a page of black instead of a map, for example


Press file-print (if available in the application you are using) or ctrl+P.This will bring up the Canon print dialog box. Click "Preferences" Uncheck the greyscale box. you will now print in colour. Sometimes clicking on a "print" icon by-passes the dialog box. Ctrl+P always works.

Hope this helps.
B.P.

Can i put canon 8bk ink in the 5pgbk slot?


Unfortunately No.
Im guessing you have 2 black ink slots?.
When copying greyscale or printing greyscale it will use the big black however when printing colour it will always use the small black cartridge.

hope this helps

My canon iP4500 will not use black ink on photopaper. If I tell it the paper is plain then it prints fine. If I tell it the paper is any type of photopaper the colours are great but there is no black ink...


If you set Plain paper with Greyscale printing, only the black Pigment tank is used.
If you set any other paper type, only the 4 Dye tanks are used - even if set to Greyscale.

Canon ip4300 color ink empty but I only want black


No, Canon does not have this facility. Also mostly greyscale is not light black but rather a mixcture of the 3 primary colours. You should have a reset/resume button on the printer - hold this in for a slow 5 seconds to de-activate ink warnings per cartridge that is giving alarms. Proceed carefully and only print text that is black so that the colour printheads do not burn out.

The ''odometer'' shows greyscale as colour


Any machine I'm familiar with has a default colour setting that you can set to either colour or black & White. Check in your printer properties. If the machine is set for colour, even if you are printing all black text for example, it will "make" the black from the colours, thus registering it as a colour document.

Canon Pixma ip4200--


I read somewhere that if the printer receives instruction from the PC that it requires black only printing (e.g. a letter in Word) then it will use the 5PGBK tank. The 8BK tank is used with the other colours in photo printing only. If you check the greyscale option, it will use ink from the 8BK tank and mix with the CMY colours to print, but I have not tried this out.
Good luck
